Vern Law

Yesterday we went to a softball game at the Orem Owls Stadium. It was a benefit for the Red Cross. They had old Major League players that live locally come and play with some local kids. Caleb (Cody's brother) was on one of the teams.

After the game was over, they asked for volunteers from the crowd to come down. Vern Law (click on his name to find out how awesome he was in his day) was going to pitch to them, and whoever hit the ball the farthest won an autographed baseball bat. Cody jumped out of his seat and went down, along with another man we know, some random stranger, and the batting coach for a local high school. Needless to say, Cody won.

I have to give props to the pitcher though. He is in his 70's and throws better than I do...and I played softball for 8 years and am way younger. haha. It was awesome.
